Al Gore: Dr. Adams, I would first like to thank you for taking the time to do this interview for my second documentary – one that deals with the rise of the religious right in American politics.

Mike Adams: Second documentary? I didn’t know you did a first. What is it about?

Gore: It deals with the issue of environmentalism. It’s called…

Adams: That’s great, Al! I was meaning to speak to you about my concerns with recent fluctuations in the world’s climate.

Gore: Really?

Adams: Yes, really. It’s mid-June and I’ve been bothered by the cool temperature, lately. Almost every night when I go out on the back deck to smoke a cigar, I have to wear a sweatshirt. It was like that last year, too. In fact, it was especially chilly last May. I’m really concerned about global cooling.

Gore: Global cooling?

Adams: Yes, global cooling. That is what your first documentary deals with, right?

Gore: No, it’s global warming.

Adams: Global warming? What the hell are you talking about?

Gore: Are you going to ask all the questions? Who’s interviewing whom? Can I ask a question?

Adams: You just asked three but go ahead and ask one more.

Gore: In an editorial you once wrote, you suggested that you support building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. If you are elected president, will you really do that?

Adams: Well, when I am elected president I will implement the plan I mentioned in a previous column.

Gore: Does it involve the military?

Adams: Yes. As we bring our troops back from Iraq – gradually over the next few years – we will align them on the U.S./Mexico border. They will be instructed to capture illegal aliens…

Gore: We don’t use that term anymore.

Adams: Well, I do. Stop interrupting me.

Gore: Well, you don’t have to get snippy about it.

Adams: As I was saying, they will capture the illegal aliens and force them to build a wall at gunpoint.

Gore: But, how will they get back over the wall after it is built?

Adams: They will climb over it unless they want to be shot.

Gore: How do you know they won’t just climb back over into the U.S?
